Christian Believer murdered in Kanyakumari, Tamil Nadu
ICC Note:
A group of believers who gathered for prayer did not realize they would be attacked with wooden rods and have their property damaged. Not long after they began praying a mob of Hindu activists interrupted their meeting and damaged their vehicles before moving on to destroy property in the town. The mob “brutally attacked” a Christian believer who died on the way to the hospital. The police, thankfully, have responded in this instance and are providing protection and attempting to calm the situation.
